Awesome twisty course. Rain. All the makings of a disaster. Fortunately it was a small field and the women can handle their bikes.
Sonja Evers (Joe's) set a hard pace for the first lap and the tone for the rest of the race. Attack after attack after attack. But while the field was small, it was strong and nothing was going to get away. Though we did lose a few racers along the way.
At the end there were 13 (maybe?) riders left (6 CycleLife thank you very much). But somehow two Artemis riders snuck away on the corner with the planks. It seemed like we would catch them, but they were stronger than we'd realized and the race had taken it's toll on the remainder of the field.
They held it!
Congrats to them. Though we won't let that happen again.
